Equiderma Calendula Wound Ointment for treatment of Wounds - Equiderma - The Worlds Greatest Equine Products

Wound Care

Regardless of the cause, all wounds must be cleaned and kept free of dirt and debris.

Daily washing with Equiderma Neem Shampoo, flushing with Clorhexadine solution, and the application of Equiderma Calendula Wound Ointment, will guarantee a successful outcome for your horse.  Equiderma Calendula Wound Ointment produces remarkable results in the treatment of horse wounds and the prevention of proud flesh.

Wounds on horses can be difficult and slow to heal especially below the knee or hock. This is primarily because the legs are comprised of bone, tendons and ligaments, and lack underlying muscle and lessened blood flow.  The skin is relatively thin, and the tight surface makes suturing difficult.

Often, despite stitching wounds break open due to excessive tension and motion. Injuries in this part of the anatomy tend to produce excessive granulation tissue known as "proud flesh". Proud flesh is an over abundance of granulation tissue that can protrude from the skin surface layer.  It is accompanied by inflammation and can significantly impact the horse's ability and appearance.



Equiderma Calendula Wound Ointment promotes healing and stops the production of proud flesh. With proper use it will accomplish the following:

  • Aid in the treatment and healing of infected and superficial wounds in horses and other animals.
  • Guard against bacterial and fungal conditions typical of stable and outdoor environments.
  • Prevent the creation of proud flesh if used at the onset of a wound.
  • Minimize scarring.
  • Repel insects - You will not need to use pesticides to keep insects out of the wound. Calendula and Neem are superstars in the herbal world for healing and as an insect repellent.

Calendula has been proven to speed the healing of burns, bruises, and cuts, and the infections they cause. Studies show that Calendula speeds healing by increasing blood flow to the injury and also increases the bodies production of collagen proteins used to heal skin and connective tissue.
